Happy Birthday Jaker McGakers

And now for the second player in our week of birthdays: Jacob Alexander turns 6 today!

Here are the top six things we love about Jacob:
  1. He has such a cheerful disposition. He's usually got a smile on his face.
  2. He is quite the character and is always making us laugh.
  3. Jacob loves to spend time with all his siblings. He's flexible enough to play Star Wars Legos one minute and be Brigitta's Prince Charming the next.
  4. He loves school and is a very hard worker.
  5. He's had a passion for horses for years (thanks to his buddy, Emelie) and enjoys helping her with Ripley.
  6. He loves to help in the kitchen. He even had me put "Can make Mac 'n Cheese" on his job list.

Here is Jacob with his favorite Star Wars character, Ahsoka. Every time I ask him if he thinks she should wear more clothes, he says "no." Go figure.

  1. I love it when people say positive things about their kids... Even though we all know kids have their moments and aren't perfect it is refreshing to hear their strong points and parents pointing them out! :) He is getting so big...
